from this morning's "washington journal." don >> he is still resolute in the face of defeat. >> not to see you. sometimes you win. sometimes you lose. >> this is tough. he is a close contender. he has given credit for getting george bush elected in 2000. bbthe supreme court nominated george bush in 2000. since he has been in the white house has been brought about everything. he spent $300 million this year of other people's money. we do not know how much money he made for that deal. in nine senate races he got one win. he has spent maybe $170 million against barack obama and for mitt romney. he had a horrible record. on election night he tried to recreate florida 2000 on fox news by insisting that the network fox was wrong to in calling the election for president obama. the number crunchers said, no, you are wrong. he made a fool of himself. still today he insists he is right. i would hope that nobody would give that guy a dollar to spend in any future election. i think his career in politics should be over. not that i feel strongly about this, but he also has this enormous

in washington that we've enjoyed so much over the past two years. >> that actually is the question before we get to our panel. we have a lot of the same still to come. what will be different and what is the lesson learned from this? >> well, it's status quo. you've got the president sitting in charge of the executive branch, obviously, president obama. the house remains in republicans' control. and the senate -- i think, you know, big pickup for the depths in the senate. all of these key races that were supposed to be so close got blown out. that's really where the soul searching's going to take place. because as i said i've said repeatedly for four years, when you run in the house, you can beat something with nothing. and i'm living proof of that. i did it in 1994. >> he undercuts himself. >> but when you run in the senate and the electorate expands, you've got to be a bit more toward the middle. and when you run for the white house, you'd better have a governing philosophy that will pull bucks county in pennsylvania, that will pull the i-4 corridor and that will pull these swing states. i'll t
washington, as we all edge closer to the so-called fiscal cliff, we'll ask two political insiders how we can break the pennsylvania avenue stalemate. and then later on on this veterans day, how dot men and women who served and sacrificed feel about how their issues played out on the campaign trail. first topping the political headlines on this sunday, lawmakers weighing in today on whether they can strike a deal to avoid sending the country over the looming fiscal cliff. democratic chuck schumer saying on nbc's "meet the press," it's time for republicans to agree to raise taxes on the wealthy. >> the president campaigned on letting the bush tax cuts expire on people above $250,000 income. the exit poll showed that 60% of the people agreed with it. >> but republican senator tom coburn also on "meet the press" indicating while the gop is on board with closing some tax loopholes, it is not sold on letting the bush tax cuts expire. >> we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. and i think the vast majority of americans agree with that. t
of ohio. >> dr. peterson, "the washington post" to are's point had an article entitled, mitt romney's campaign insults voters. through all the flip-flops there has been one consistency in the campaign of republican president nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. rrm seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills and general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. >> yeah, again, if we put that revenge comment in its proper context, part of what that revenge is about is romney's violation of the public trust. when we look at these different things that have gone on in the campaign, it's very, very difficult to see mitt romney as an authentic campaigner or authentic politician. that's where you get the revenge piece. that's where the oped seems to be right on point. again, we look at a number of different issues. look at the adz playing in ohio right now. you look at that chrysler ad, you look at this desperate republican ad trying to convince black folk that the republican party are on their side.

it is up for grabs. we have a lot of confusing information out. abc "washington post" has a 3-point lead for obama but a six more point democrats sampled than republicans. cnn had a tie and an 11-point more democrat. it was a 7-point more democrat than republican in 2008, cnn had it at 11 points and had it at a tie. we have too many polls, the precision they don't have, i'm a numbers guy. i like to see the votes. we know that president obama's margin has declined. if you take a look at the states, the battleground states where there's partisan registration, so you can actually track who is it who is voting early or applying for an absentee ballot. the democrats had a 11-point margin four juror four years ago, it's 5.5 today. 340,000 democrats voted early than republicans four years ago. they this year about 105 more democrats have turned out than republicans, which points to a very, very, very tight night. jon: as you well know these elections are won in the middle, democrats largely vote for their candidates, republicans largely vote for their candidate, and it's the independent voter t

to it and seems to be gaining momentum in washington. >> look, if you want to be serious about deficit reduction you're going to have to allow the tax rates for upper income people to go back to the clinton era. that's where the money is. if you're really serious, then you go after the various loopholes that exist. but you cannot bargain away and i certainly hope that the president will keep his campaign promise that we are not going to extend the tax breaks for the top 2%. that is, as you've indicated that's where the money is. >> eliot: tomorrow the president is meeting with a range of ceos and granted they're an important constituency. they run important pieces of our economic structure. what should he tell them tomorrow when he meets with them? >> what he should tell them is that atime when the wealthy are doing phenomenally well and when corporate profits are in some cases off the wall, wall street is doing very well. that if they love this country that if they're serious about deficit reduction they are going to h
is in sterling, a suburban area west of washington, d.c. wyatt, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're at the forest grove elementary school precinct here in sterling, virginia. this is a swing precinct, swing county all in the swing state of virginia. why do we say that? because four years ago, this precinct and hundreds like it gave president barack obama 54% of the vote, turned around the very next year and gave republican governor bob mcdonnell 59% of the vote. that means what the voters here behind me decide tonight could be the story of the election. both sides, of course, say it's all about ground game today. the personal contacts, the phone calls, the ride to the polls that will make all the difference. republicans admit they were crushed by the president's ground game four years ago. that won't happen again, they say. both sides are claiming 20 million personal voter contacts, enough to contact every single virginia voter four times. to win tonight, both sides also tell me they need to increase the margins where they are strong. for the romney campaign, that means senior ci
that most of the media is located in new york city and washington and you get a more liberal members of the press corps as a result of where they are ran they live. that's undeniable. i will say that george bush went to war with a very complacent media saying there were weapons of mass destruction. nobody really looked into it too much except for a few left-leaning newspapers. soy wouldn't say the media has done a good job in either case of get together bottom of what voters need them to get to the bottom of. megyn: there is a question of whether we reached a new level where the media loves a president. there have been many segments we have had when we talk about if mitt romney is running against the forth estate in addition to barack obama. >> there is a fundamental head wind against republicans. some of my friends on the right think there is an open conspiracy among the mainstream media to stick it to republicans wherever they can. i agree the mainstream media has given politicians a hard time. they are like werewolves, they prefer to meade on republicans but they must feed on some
